Water makes it to the final five in Oscars
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
January 24, 2007

Water made it to the final five of the foreign language category in Oscars. When the nominations were announced yesterday, the Deepa Mehta directed trilogy ‘Water’ found a place in the final five of the same category. Banned in India for its allegedly controversial content, Water is contending for the coveted Oscars as an official entry of Canada.


Deepa Mehta faced stiff resistance in India when she attempted to film the movie a couple of years ago in and around Varanasi, in the shores of the holy river Ganges. Angry protesters vandalized the sets of the movie and subsequently the shoots were called off.

However, Deepa, resolute in her decision, conducted the shoots in Srilanka with Lisa Ray, John Abraham, and Seema Biswas. Though not released in India, the movie is receiving critical acclaim in film festivals around the globe.

Water narrates the gripping tale of the life of widows abandoned by their family members in Vrindavan.
